Here is a photo I’ve posted a few times. It’s from an early snow storm a few years ago. I think the contrast in seasons portrayed is quite interesting.
Lots of things happen beneath your feet that you don’t even realize. How often do we step on things that we didn’t even know were there? There are thousands, probably millions or billions of tiny organisms under our feet every time we take a step. There are also lots of buried things deep in the ground beneath us that we don’t give a second thought to.
Foggy is very similar to humid in my mind. It took some planning ahead to choose photos that represented each accurately. Here is my contribution to this week’s challenge.
For me, Inspiration comes from lot of things, and sometimes from nothing. Sometimes, a thought just pops into my head, and I spend some time with it. Other times, I have to spend some time thinking, before I get that spark. Usually spending time alone, in a quiet place, helps with that. I don’t live near the ocean, so most of the time, deep into the woods is where I go. But on the occasion that I am near the beach, spending some time alone on the rocks can be pretty inspiring.
As an east coast native, humidity is something that I’ve always just accepted as part of warm weather. It wasn’t until I travelled to the west coast that I experienced how pleasant warm weather actually can be. This photo represents typical spring and summer mornings on the east coast.
As a person who takes lots of nature-related photos, a lot of my collection is close ups. I had a lot to chose from for this week, but it didn’t make the selection much easier. I wanted to find one that showed a lot of small details, but wasn’t too in-your-face. This is what I’ve come up with:
I didn’t have a picture in mind for this challenge when I read the prompt, but after a quick (long) peruse through my photos, I found this:
Flooding has been a pretty big problem for a lot of people this summer. It’s been pretty rainy.
This photo is from a few years ago after a big rain storm. The ground was so saturated with water that this little puddle was left.
When I think of sandstorms, I think of Ancient Egypt. I know there are sandstorms all over the globe, all the time, but that’s what I think of.
Here is a picture of “sandstorm” written in Elder Futhark, an ancient runic alphabet, which was derived from the hieroglyphics of Ancient Egypt.
Fun fact: The Egyptian God of sandstorms was Set, or Seth. He was also the god of chaos, disorder, violence, and storms in general.
